Re: Passing data from RowList to the itemComponentName?

https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/MarkupList#MarkupList-MarkupListXMLComponent Sounds like you could add a field / fields to the itemContent and use that field "Typically, an observer of the itemContent field is used to update the list item when the content changes." I am trying to ...

Re: Passing data from RowList to the itemComponentName?

Has anybody found a solution to passing data to an itemComponentName?
I have worked around this by adding to the itemContent's metadata. Also I have used the global scope.  
I would much prefer to pass data through a specific field however.
Ideas anybody?

Re: Rowlist re-renders/changes focus after loading more content

... right now I understand that I am observing "itemFocused" which means that then entire rowlist is being observed. So if I can observe  what is just viewable that makes the most sense. But I don't know how I would replace the index tracking.... hmmm. I'll keep trying.

Right now I am just following the rowlist examples in the dev repos and Yes they are using the focused index.  Aren't the items staying dormant until they get focused? If I use render tracking, what part of the rowli...
